Product description

Review

Happe 's book is a clear and concise guide to the current research. She picks her way carefully through the minefield of controversies to point out a middle ground where she believes consensus might lie. The book will be invaluable for students, but also useful for others interested in this field and who, like her, 'find themselves captivated and mesmerised by the enigma of autism.' -- Sanjida O'Connell "New Scientist"

Happe 's informative, well-written, and highly readable book provides the reader with current research and thinking in the area of autism. It is organized around three levels of explanation--biological, behavioral, and cognitive--and attempts to explain the deficits that occur in each of these domains...Many interesting topics are explored, such as Asperger's Syndrome and other related clinical entities; epidemiology; autistic children with special talents; and the concept of partial autism. Further references are given for those who want to explore any of the topics in depth. A well-documented book with more than 300 references, reflecting the latest literature. -- P. Barker "Choice"
